    Whoops. I didn’t read this until now. I guess you’re probably not at table 106 any more?

    Give Gawny the captaincy now! Phase out Jones as skipper a make it Gawn and Viney as co-captains With Tmac as 2IC or in this case 3IC.

    Also Trac needs to get the lead out and a rocket up him. Drop the arrogance and cocky attitude.

    ...

    If anything he needs to up the arrogance because when he plays he second guesses himself with ball in hand. Play on instinct like De Goey does, don't complicate things...

    Jones leadership must still be very solid for him to poll so well. Just because he doesn't rack up the touches as he used doesn't mean he's a worse leader now then he was before

    Don't reckon Jones' leadership has any impact on his votes during games, he just must be playing roles we don't see.

    There is more to footy than just winning possessions. None of us have any idea what roles these players are set and how they are judge internally. Just because you poll well in the brownlow doesn't mean you will do better in the bnf count. If anything it shows (in the eyes of the coaches) Gus still has work to do on his game.

    And please Trac needs to drop the arrogance, he won the club ambassador for all the special effort he made with the young boy from Tassie, you don't do things like that if you have your head up your own backside.

    I love Gawn but some players just aren't meant to be captain. Some players could do well to operate with a freedom from responsibility.

    Best and Fairest awards always reward durability and penalise players for missing games through injury. Ranking the players by votes per game gives a better snapshot of how well they played when they were out there.

    26.3 Max Gawn , 25 games
    24.4 Jack Viney , 10
    23.8 Clayton Oliver , 25
    21.7 Tom McDonald , 20
    19.5 Angus Brayshaw , 22
    18.7 James Harmes , 25
    18.6 Jake Melksham , 23
    18.3 Jesse Hogan , 20
    18.0 Nathan Jones , 25
    16.8 Christian Salem , 24
    15.3 Neville Jetta , 25
    15.3 Jordan Lewis , 24
    15.1 Michael Hibberd , 21
    13.8 Oscar McDonald , 25
    13.5 Jake Lever , 11
    13.4 Sam Frost , 13
    12.9 Alex Neal-Bullen , 25
    12.1 Mitchell Hannan, 15
    11.6 Charlie Spargo, 18
    11.3 Bayley Fritsch , 23
    11.2 Christian Petracca , 24
    10.1 Bernie Vince, 17
    10.0 Sam Weideman, 10
    9.5 Jeff Garlett, 11
    7.4 Dom Tyson, 17

    Fewer than 10 games...
    17.9 Aaron Vandenberg , 7
    13.0 Tomas Bugg, 3
    12.6 Josh Wagner, 5
    11.0 Dean Kent, 5
    10.5 Billy Stretch, 2
    10.2 Jay Kennedy-Harris, 6
    10.0 Tim Smith, 4

    Petracca needs to lift!

    Disappointing seasons from Garlett and Tyson

    What's the go with Hunt? I've always thought he had talent.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to do this. A few things stand out for mine:

    - Coaches clearly believe that Hunt is capable of so much more than what we saw, while they were genuinely pleased with the output of Wagner + Bugg when they played
    - Tyson - yuck
    - Viney - what a gun. Just need to get him fit. Ditto Hoges, will be said if i's not with us

    That was the worst debut I've ever seen. Felt so sorry for the kid.

    This.

    I love Gawn but I think he is doing a stellar job exactly where he is. No need to **** that up with giving him a different role on top.

    Jones must be either playing a more defensive role on the wing and negating someone or he's been bloody good at setting up our stoppages and structures during games.
